Muslims butchered eighty-five people in Nigeria, burning alive twenty people and killing another sixty-five. According to a report:
At least 65 people were killed and 136 others injured, Nigeria’s National Emergency Management Agency said on its official Twitter account Monday, though some accounts put the death toll higher. Borno State Health Commissioner Haruna Mshelia said Monday that 85 people were killed, 16 others were missing, and 59 others were injured.
NEMA chief Mohammed Kanar said “Some women were kidnapped by the Boko Haram gunmen, but I don’t know how many they were.”
The attack happened Saturday night, right after evening prayers.
“We had just finished evening prayers when the gunmen came to our village and indiscriminately opened fire and set fire to homes,” resident Kulo Sheriff said.
“They detonated two bombs, which added to our fright and confusion. Everybody fled into the bush from where we saw our homes burning.”
Some local media reported 20 or more of the victims were burned alive in their homes in the attack.
